Ms. Morgan - welcome to your new Ed reporting job for EM and at the Voice.

The MVWSD existing protocol on pandemic response - adopted 'way back' when I was a Trustee - required when in pandemic mode / all students be pre-screened for symptons BEFORE GOING TO CLASSROOMS. Further, the health person on-site was to sequester or ISOLATE any symptomatic student in the health office (or other appropriate room away from other students).

Reporter Morgan - has the MVWSD dropped this requirement from their pandemic protocal (which was voted on and adopted by the Board)?
